's not as risky as an uncontrolled delivery and emergency surgery. so really, three big differences here when you compare it to a standard c-section. time. normally when we do a c-section we can have the baby out in seconds. this operation, as we heard, takes hours, before then the baby was born. also, type of an es 2450esh yeah. the goal in the c-section is to keep the baby awake and the mother calm, with good anesthesia so that the anesthesia doesn't go to the baby. in this case you want that anesthesia to the baby because you don't want the baby moving. in blood loss, in a c-section you want to keep the uterus contracted so you don't lose a lot of blood. this is the opposite. it's incredible. >> nice to have you with us. we'll be right back. >> "cbs healthwatch" sponsored by v-8 v-fusion juice. vegetable and fruit juice that just tastes like fruit. discover customersl are getting five percent cashback bonus at the pump... and at many of the places their summer plans take them. it pays to switch, it pays to discover. you get so hooked you'll want to pass it on to a friend. go to getfreshwithafr

know we need revenues if we want a big package to solve the deal. now, if it turns out that the other side won't budge on anything, then we're going to be here every day until we get this done. >> senator mcconnell's proposal we mentioned brieflily at the top came after he sat down with the president. what do the white house and other leaders saying about it this morning? >> well, there's a sense of relief. you can almost feel it all across washington today, erica. because senator mcconnell's proposal would help them step back from the brink. the president's spokesperson jay carney said yesterday that default is not an option and they said some positive things about senator mcconnell's proposal. so everyone today is debating that proposal, but there is a sense that it lets some of the pressure off and may help the country avoid default. >> so in some ways, it seems to let some of the pressure off politically because even though the president told you it's time to set politics aside, neither party wants to be the one that causes the u.s. to default. you say a sense of relief. does it s
